Our test car was fitted with RSE (Rear Seat Entertainment) centred on a boot mounted six disc DVD auto-changer, 6.5 inch twin screens mounted in the rear of the front seat head rests and wireless headphones.

Safety and Security

The Range Rover is equipped with the following safety and security equipment as standard:

Nine airbags including a driver’s knee bag, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and Active Roll Mitigation (ARM), Adaptive Bi-Xenon headlights, alarm, immobiliser, ABS (anti-lock brakes with EBA (electronic brake assist), ETC (electronic traction control) and deadlocks

Infotainment

The Range Rover Vogue SE comes with an array of in car entertainment equipment. The audio system is based around the Harman/Kardon sound processor which delivers 710 watts of power through 14 speakers. This is coupled to a six CD auto-changer which is mounted in the upper glove compartment delivering LOGIC7 world-class audiophile quality to passengers wherever they are seated in the vehicle.

The sound quality is excellent and in our opinion only a bespoke audio system could offer more enjoyment.

Our test car was fitted with RSE (Rear Seat Entertainment) centred on a boot mounted six disc DVD auto-changer, 6.5 inch twin screens mounted in the rear of the front seat head rests and wireless headphones. This enables you to watch digital freeview TV or DVD films when on the move in the rear and via the front navigation screen when the vehicle is stationary.

Rear Seat passengers can choose a different sound source to those in the front, listening in privacy via the wireless headphones.

The Range Rover also offers a DVD based Satellite Navigation system which can be operated, on the move, manually or by voice. Voice, map and text instructions give a guide to the destination with both estimated time of arrival and distance remaining being displayed on screen. The system can re-route as an immediate reaction to traffic conditions and will even display nearby filling stations when fuel runs low. Off road navigation shows the contours of the terrain and provides the ability to mark waypoints in the memory.
